Songwriter Susan Werner has built a reputation coast to coast as one of the most daring musical forces on the acoustic circuit. With professional jazz, rock and classical chops on piano, guitar and vocals, her songs and shows explore a dizzying array of styles and themes in concept albums ranging from Cuban Son (An American In Havana), to New Orleans junk piano (NoLa), a celebration and critique of the American church (The Gospel Truth), and new “Great American Songbook” style standards (I Can’t Be New).
Werner has toured with luminaries such as Richard Thompson, Joan Armatrading, Keb Mo and George Carlin, and her performances are renowned for their intensity, spontaneity and humor. Her score for composer and lyricist of the score for Bull Durham, The Musical, based on the MGM film (Alliance Theater, Atlanta) was praised by the New York Times and the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Her latest full length recording (Flyover Country) is a collection of 10 originals in traditional country and bluegrass song forms and features Werner’s signature blend of musicality, poetry and wit.
Her latest EP, a recording of original songs, The Birds of Florida, is currently available for purchase at susanwerner.com as well as on spotify, you tube, apple music , pandora, and itunes.
Susan will be accompanied this evening by long time band mate Trina Hamlin on harmonica, percussion and vocals. Trina Hamlin is an American folk-rock singer-songwriter from Minneapolis. She studied at the Berklee College of Music, majoring in professional music, after which she moved to New York City and began performing solo as well as with several notable artists over the course of her career.
